Sex and the Church explores how Christian opinions about sex have evolved

Is a large swathe of Christianity out of step with the modern world? As society in general becomes more liberal, the Church seems more entrenched. This Sex and the Church explores how the religion's complex, explosive and often divisive ideas about sex, marriage and gender have their roots in an extraordinary story that began 2,000 years ago.

From Mormons, Methodists and missionaries to the witch-hunts of the 16th century, the drag queens of 18th century London and the sexual revolution of the 1960s, Sex and the Church reveals how Christian views on sex and gender have never been fixed - they are in flux and they have been so right from the start.
